Promoting Mental Health Awareness Week: Advocacy and Support at The Smallpeice Trust

In a world where the importance of mental health awareness is gaining overdue recognition, initiatives like Mental Health Awareness Week (13 – 19 May 2024) play a pivotal role in fostering understanding, support, and advocacy. At The Smallpeice Trust, our commitment to mental health is not just a statement but a cornerstone of our organisational ethos. Amidst the hustle and bustle of daily life, it's easy to overlook the significance of mental health. However, this annual observance encourages individuals and organisations alike to pause, reflect, and take proactive steps towards nurturing mental well-being.

At The Smallpeice Trust, we actively promote mental health awareness and support among its staff and stakeholders. One notable aspect of our dedication is the presence of several staff members trained as mental health first aiders. These individuals serve as invaluable resources, equipped with the knowledge and skills to provide initial support to those experiencing mental health challenges. 

The Smallpeice Trust's advocacy for mental health extends beyond their internal practices. We recognise the importance of fostering a culture of openness, empathy, and support. By championing mental health awareness, we aim to create a safe and inclusive environment where individuals feel empowered to seek help when needed. 

'Moving more for our mental health’ is the theme of Mental Health Awareness Week 2024, so this month The Smallpeice Trust team held a staff wellness walk. With our offices based in the centre of Royal Leamington Spa we were spoilt for choice with parks and green areas to stretch our legs. The walk also involved a nature photography competition and the chance to win prizes for the best photo in each category: flora, fauna, landscape, and architecture. You can view one of the winning images above, taken by our colleague, Katie! 

The Smallpeice Trust is proud to recognise that mental health is not separate from other facets of life but intricately intertwined with them. By prioritising mental health awareness, we continue to support our staff and contribute to a broader societal shift towards destigmatising mental health issues. Together, we can create a world where mental well-being is not just an afterthought but a fundamental aspect of being a human.
